77th Anniversary D-Day Normandy Invasion

I was sort of expecting Hov to mention it. I sincerely hope we never forget the sacrifices made.
The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year, but rather that we should have a new soul.

My pastor made his sermon about it.

I knew an old vet, Pappy Walls, who was a medic at Normandy(Omaha Beach, IIRC).
Truly the greatest generation.
He left me his fishing books, which I still have.

Can't imagine what those young men felt waiting for the gates to drop on those boats.
